Hey, guys, this is absolutely not a BB bashing post, as I really like BB's (even though I do not personally own one), but I was wondering what BB followers thought about the new Nokia E61 (<--- link)
from the Nokia business E-Series.
It's the same form factor with a QUERTY k/b, also includes WiFi, WCDMA, Class 11 GPRS, infrared, double the talk time, 24-bit (16 million) colors (as opposed to 65K), 75MB RAM (as opposed to 64MB), supports many more Bluetooth profiles, etc. (Side note: If you buy the version Cingular is about to release, you'll find WiFi, WCDMA and the 900 MHz band are crippled... typical!)
Also, not only does it support BlackBerry Connect, but also other push e-mail solutions: Intellisync Wireless Email, GoodLink, Seven Always-On Mail and Visto.
Having all that and more to offer on top of RIM's alternative, I would honestly say the number of reasons to stay with BB gets reduced and most of the remaining reasons will be related to brand loyalty and preference on looks and the BB operating system as opposed to Symbiam Series 60.
Please give me your feedback.
P.S. The E61 can also be had for a lot less (<--- link)
than the 8700.
